Love is in the air, or is that the floral bouquet of a lovely rose-based tea blend? Perhaps for the New York City denizens, it can be both, thanks to an all new event from Dona. Taking place February 8th at the Urbana Cafe & Gallery in Chelsea, Dona is teaming up with Brownstone Botanical for Tea & Flowers, a combination tea cupping and bouquet making class.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day—which is Tuesday, February 14th, in case you have someone expecting you to have remembered and planned something special—Tea & Flowers is a rose-themed community event for the amorously caffeinated. The two-hour event will include a rose-themed tea tasting led by Dona that will include “an in-depth tasting of a favorite rose-based tea blend and a [discussion of] the ethical sourcing, tea history, and the importance of quality ingredients.” Each participant will also leave with a tea set of their very own.

Then, Brownstone Botanical’s Molly Halpin will lead attendees through a “mini rose bouquet workshop,” with each person leaving with a custom bouquet of their own making.
